‘Here is a Hamlet who seems to have pondered each line for its meaning as well as weighed it for its musical value, who points the wit, the agony, the ecstasy of Hamlet with a sensitive appreciation of the lad from Wittenberg who has been hurled into this bestial world of court and crime.
Mr. Gielgud went to the Old Vic with a reputation. Shakespeare has played on him as though he was that recorder which Hamlet uses for simile; the great parts have found him ready, and evoked fresh power.
He has given us a beautiful Richard II, a fine Othello, and an even finer Hamlet. It is high time that we recognised in this young kinsman of Ellen Terry a player who is out of his prentice stage and able to take his place in any company.’
Ivor Brown writing about John Gielgud’s Hamlet (The Guardian, 29 May 1930.)

It is told from the perspective of one lone (or not so lone) long term visitor. It informs one of the dregs of the country and helps to explain quaint British oddities such as the crack addicted chav.
